This procedure involves the removal of fat cells from different areas
of the body, which may include the chin, neck, abdomen, flanks, hips,
thighs, buttocks, upper arms, and knees. Liposuction (Lipo) removes fat
cells not cellulite (the “cottage cheese” bumps).

Lipo may be used for select candidates for breast reduction or male breast
enlargement (gynecomastia). Summit Plastic Surgery Fort Wayne uses the
tumescent method of liposuction, which is the preferred option with little blood
loss, less bruising, and less discomfort.

Not all of the fat is removed, so some of the fat could return to that area or another area. Not everyone is a candidate for liposuction. Discuss with your Summit Plastic Surgery surgeon which procedure may benefit you. Liposuction is not a substitute for exercising or a cure for overeating.
